Researchers in Australia say they have found a way to alter fabric so that stains disappear after a few minutes of sun exposure.
They dip the fabric into a special solution that coats it with microscopic copper and silver particles. When hit with light, these particles jump to life and act a bit like bleach.
Questions for discussion:
1. What other uses could be applied by using an innovation such as this?
2. How would today’s leading laundry brands survive if such a nano-material was released to the public market?
